We went to Munich for work and funds were tight, so we just wanted some rooms near the Central Station that were basic, clean and had their own bathrooms.
The Hotel Schweiz is located on a slightly dodgy-looking street, about 5 minutes' walk from the station. We checked in at 1am though, and most streets look dodgy at that time of night. The first impression was that lobby smelt strangely of fish. This was really the only negative point though.
The single rooms here were tiny (not a surprise - the photos on the website accurately illustrated this) but very well designed. They had a desk, wardrobe, TV, shelf to put your suitcase, convenient sockets to plug your phone in on the bedside table, and a small but immaculate bathroom with a good, powerful shower. Exactly what you need really.
Wifi was €1 per hour, or €5 for 5 days. No-brainer really. The signal strength was fairly weak in our part of the hotel, and it was quite slow, but good enough for checking email etc.
I didn't notice any street noise at night, but the walls to the corridors are quite thin so you could potentially be woken by other guests.
The reception staff and cleaners we spoke to were friendly and helpful, and all spoke English.
It's definitely not luxurious, but for the price, location and cleanliness, I would definitely consider staying here again.
